What tests are conducted to detect lung cancer?


It does not take a doctor to know that diseases can vary in severity. It also does not take a medical professional to know that for many diseases, early diagnosis is key to effective and successful treatment. It does, however, take a medical professional to spot signs of a disease, order and conduct the proper tests, accurately read and analyze those tests and make a final and correct diagnosis. Far too often, though, doctors fail to properly perform their duties and the results can be deadly.

Can Massachusetts residents be hurt by anesthesia errors?


Modern day medicine, in comparison to the medical world of 100 years ago, is nothing short of miraculous. X-rays can help Massachusetts doctors see broken bones, CAT scans can give a better view of internal organs and surgical robots can make surgeries less intrusive. Though these medical advances are beneficial for the vast majority of patients, they are not without their dangers, and those who are wrongly hurt should not be forgotten.

Steps taken by the FDA to prevent medication errors


At some point in our lives, most of us will need to take a prescription drug. These medications can be extremely beneficial, helping fight infection, disease, and ease pain. In some instances, taking the right medication can mean the difference between life and death. It is therefore critically important that doctors, nurses, and pharmacists take care when prescribing, fulfilling, and administering prescription medications.

Protecting and helping families affected by birth injury


Medical professionals are expected to know what they are doing, and to do it well. That is why doctors have to go through years of extensive learning and immersive training. However, despite how much training a doctor receives or how great his or her reputation, mistakes can still occur that can cause unsuspecting individuals serious harm.

How could cerebral palsy affect my child and me?

The birth of a child should be a momentous and joyous event in your life, as well as the lives of those who love and support you. In fact, many Massachusetts families, like yours, eagerly await the new addition, and make many plans for the child to come. Yet, despite all the planning, the health of your newborn baby is often dependent on decisions made by medical professionals at the time of delivery. Though many births are successful, resulting in an injury-free event, far too many still result in birth injuries.

What documents do I need for a medical malpractice claim?


There are a lot of documents that can help you with your claim. When it comes to actually proving medical malpractice, your medical records may be especially critical. These documents will indicate your treatment, which an attorney can then analyze to see if that care fell within the acceptable standard of care. If it did not, and you suffered harm as a result, then negligence may be found.
